Found March 04, 2013 on Steel City Blitz:
Former Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback William Gay is going to sign a deal with the Steelers when free agency opens up next week according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

It’s Time for the Steelers to Add Playmakers

This is something I really wanted to wait and write a week or so heading into the draft, but I just need to get it off my chest. Obviously much of what I say here can be severely altered in the next few weeks due to off-season moves and rookie pro days, but that really isn’t going to change my thinking too much. The Pittsburgh Steelers need playmakers and they can’t wait for...

2012 Grades, Position by Position, Defensive Secondary

In the recent past, the secondary was the weak link of the Steelers’ defense. It was widely known that while teams may not have been able to run the ball on Pittsburgh, you could have success throwing it. That has changed in more recent years, and 2012 was no exception. The Steelers led the NFL in yards allowed passing, and were 7th in the league in opposing completion percentage...
